Wanted to share - like most everyone running a maf-less tune, my Cold Start was REALLY loud and only exacerbated by the muffler delete (Timmay!)
This is truly a COLD START - in fact. . .I had to jump my car to start it it's sat for a few days (have a parasitic drain from a seat motor I just "fixed"). FYI it's about 55 degrees F. . .(-edit- lets try 61 degrees as the video states). . . .
Evolve's Cold Start tune is, in my opinion, exponentially quieter (maybe not technically exponential). . .have a listen. . .sorry about the shaky video.
while you are at it. . .tell me about my Vanos noise
I'll add this. . .I believe that the cold start idle is much more stable on this version of the Evolve tune than the other (not that it was bad to begin with). . .NO hunt, NO pulsing. . .seems to just hit it right!

Do you have to let it run any longer to warm up?
That's gonna be good when I finish my exhaust
In your video all your warm up lights all light up at 61 degrees. My first 2 warm up lights work only sometimes I think. It stopped lighting up and then I saw them light up 2 weeks ago and then not anymore again. WEIRD. Only the first 2 lights not behaving..
Will prob make a new thread or maybe even search if anyone's had the same thing happen to them..
